Hello dear friends,

Today I made Valentine goodie boxes for my sweet college daughters and their friends.  I started out with these...

Yep, those all too familiar mini mailboxes from Target. I had a few red and pink one sin my stash that I thought would work.

I covered them with pretty "Tilda" paper I purchased from Traci at Art Attack and embellished with my flowers, seam binding and pearls for a shabby kind of look. I also thought I would fill them with fun sweet treats and goodies.

I added a couple of pillow boxes filled with treats

I also added a couple of cards. I packaged everything in floral decorative boxes.

These were so much fun to make...and give. I love the floral boxes. The girls can use them for storage in their dorm rooms instead of just getting a throwaway cardboard box that would have to be recycled...and they're so pretty!

Thanks for visiting today.

Out With the Old....In With the New

Wow, I can't believe it..2015 is here! Time is flying by so fast, I feel a need to get moving with a few personal goals I've harbored over the past few years. I'm excited, and quite frankly a bit anxious as well, but very determined to make the most of this bright shiny new year.

So....backtrack to last night -- New Year's Eve. We had a blast! The 4 of us celebrated at our pajamas!  We created our own little celebration complete with banners, party hats, party food and sparkling cider. We watched New Year's Rockin' Eve (not the same without Dick Clark, but still fun - oh, and I love Fergie!) and laughed and danced through it all. We counted down as the ball dropped and set off noise makers at midnight. A part of me was missed not getting dressed up and going out on the town for a "real" holiday celebration, but I got over that really fast! ...I loved our little party!

There are so many things I'd like to accomplish this year, but one of the biggies on my list is to keep up with this poorly neglected blog. Looking forward to sharing with you all...Thank you for visiting and taking this journey with me. Stay tuned!
